John Moyle Field Day 2012

Overview:
The contest takes place on the 3rd full weekend in March each year, and this year runs from 0100 UTC Saturday to 0059 UTC Sunday, 17 – 18 March 2012.

The aim is to encourage and provide familiarisation with portable operation, and provide training for emergency situations. The rules are therefore specifically designed to encourage field operation.

All VK, ZL, and P2 stations can claim points for all contacts, with any amateur station in world, as long as valid serial numbers are exchanged.
